Hi,

Just need to know how to adjust the chain on the single sided swingarm version of the Rs. MOT is soon so I'm getting anxious and I'm puzzled with it.

All the best,
Jack

Ta for the replies lads, managed to figure it out before the MOT. But it failed because of a bent handlebar and the fact that I lack a high beam (I knew it wasn't right but I didn't have time to sort it).

Basically I'm missing the part the headlight bulb sits into, not the plastic part with the two point connectors the other bit. Has anyone got one of these?

Ta again,
Jack

Here's the plastic part with the two point connector (is this the right part?). I think that I'm missing a metal collar that slots into this plastic part and which the headlight bulb sits in.

Headlight bulb (is this the right one?)
